Tutuguri is a solo piece. Here vocal cords and body are playing together, offering to «hear» dance. In a polyphonic solo piece, Tutuguri explores the dissynchronicity between movements and sounds, in a perpetual conflict of opposites. The dancer’s body is inhabited by whispers, animal growls, children’s noises, alien sounds, conversations, spasms, singing from the guts, transporting us to a spectral landscape of voices. Tutuguri aims to connectedness, it proposes fluxes of sounds and affects and promotes bridges to nothingness.
